Angular displacement and velocity
Learn how to describe circular motion quantitatively. The kinematics of circular motion.
Learn what causes circular motion. The dynamics of circular motion.
Types of circular motion
Centripetal acceleration and force
In the following interactive, you can adjust the radii and angular velocities of two different objects and observe their changes in centripetal acceleration according to the relationship $a = r\omega^2$.
See if you could obtain the same magnitude of acceleration with different values of $r$ and $\omega$.
